Dr. Cherian Joseph Mathai
Cherian Joseph Mathai completed his Ph.D. in Physics from the Cochin University of Science and Technology, India. During his graduate degree, he worked on the plasma polymerized thin films and their optical and electrical characterization. He worked at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Mumbai and at the Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, as a postdoctoral fellow before joining the University of Missouri as a Research Scientist. His expertise is in the process development of thin films and their applications in devices. He has developed a process to obtain porous palladium and gold substrates by co-sputtering and dealloying technique. He is also working on developing novel metamaterials for sensing application. Joseph has expertise in multitude of thin film depositing tools and analytical instruments.
